DIY Thick Crystal Chain

I’ve previously done a few DIYs using fake crystal beads, making ice-inspired necklaces and a crystal-style bracelet but this necklace is my new fave. A statement piece using a thick 80’s style ghetto gold chain and sleek fake crystal beads, this necklace is beautiful when layered over bright jewel tones.

What you need:

  • Wide gold chain
  • 12 long fake crystal beads
  • 14 big gold jump rings
  • 1 gold spring clasp

How to:

  1. Starting in the middle of the chain, attach one crystal bead per chain link using a gold jump ring.

  2. Using the two remaining jump rings, attach the spring clasp to either end of the chain.

This necklace is so easy to make and can be worn many different ways; the bold thick chain is a contemporary addition to a dressed up look while the sleek crystals also lends the necklace a sophisticated impression.

Happy DIYing!
